Sharp excited by Rovers loan

04 Sep 2009 - 11:46:18

Striker Billy Sharp is hoping to kick-start his career after joining Doncaster Rovers on loan from Sheffield United.

The 23-year-old hitman was a bit-part player with the Blades last season and jumped at the chance to join Rovers on a season-long loan.

"I've been missing playing and I'm eager to get back," said the former Scunthorpe United hot-shot.

"It was frustrating towards the back end of last season when I didn't get any games when I came back from injury.

"I worked hard and I thought that I could get back into the team for this season, but it wasn't to be.

"I felt that I needed a new challenge and I'm looking forward to getting it here.

"I've seen the team play a few times and they are a good footballing side. They get the ball down and pass it and they are full of energy and they create a lot of chance.

"Hopefully their style of football will suit my game. That's why I came here."
